Maximalist interior designers are masters of combining patterns, palettes, textures, and layers to achieve the “more is more” aesthetic, bringing a riot of color, form, and pattern to every room they create. Although it may not everyone’s cup of tea, the trend towards bolder interiors has grown steadily and significantly over the past few years, as homeowners embrace the opportunity to project their playful personalities into their spaces and to show off their collections of, well, anything and everything all at once. The following maximalist interior designers—all of whom are listed on the AD PRO Directory—know just how to give homes a wow factor through brave decor choices, eclectic curation, and whimsical details. Fair warning: You might not know where to look first.
Barry and Amanda Lantz—a father-daughter team—combine their skills and sensibilities in their interiors through their studio, Lantz Collective, which operates out of both Florida and Indiana. Amanda’s eye for object curation ensures that their projects are always packed with items from unexpected places. Barry, a self-taught painter, brings unique personal style and an adoration of Midwestern and Southern landscapes to original artworks. Frequently appearing in Lantz Collective’s spaces, these works add colorful abstract scenes into an already eclectic mix.
